about

Lee Quick's Single Bi Female EP features fun and pithy songs for your listening pleasure. And NO Auto-Tune.

Yes Please (Big Brother):
A bluesy ditty dedicated to all our Big Brothers, asking the musical question: should there be more or less government (between the sheets)?

Twenty-three Six:
A catchy swing tune about the frustrations of friendship. Written in March 2005 at the Writers Room in Nashville and revised July 2008.

How To Be Rich:
A fingerpicking ode to the wit and wisdom of Ralph Nader, who said this: "Don't buy what you don't want, don't buy what you don't need, and don't buy things that don't work."

West Nile Virus:
From WKU 91.7 FM Folk University radio show, Lee plays "West Nile Virus" live on the air, complete with DJ participation! And it's a free download. How much more exciting could this be?!

plus 2 humorous tracks from the "Do You Think?" album:

You Walked Out The Door
and
Folk U. (free bonus track)

Track Name: Yes Please (Big Brother)
Although we haven’t met
I admire what you do
What I do in my bed
really matters to you
O big brother-in-law, give advice to us all...

Yes please tell us all, tell us what to believe
Yes please tell us all we are Adam and Eve
Yes please tell us all how the planet began
Yes please tell us all how to family plan
Yes please tell us all, tell us all, tell us all
I don’t know how we’d do it on our own

I appreciate
your concern for my soul
When you legislate
your morality code
Please proceed to decide just for your peace of mind...

Yes please tell us all how to righteously live
Yes please tell us all who we better not kiss
Yes please tell us all how to follow our heart
Yes please tell us all how to death-do-us-part
Yes please tell us all, tell us all, tell us all
I don’t know how we’d do it on our own

We love big brother, we love big brother

I apologize
if my love life offends
I don’t mean to deprive
you of your happiness
Life is so simplified when you make up my mind...

Yes please tell us all how to choose what we choose
Yes please tell us all how to play by the rules
Yes please tell us all who to hate, who to love
Yes please tell us all you are watching above
Yes please tell us all, tell us all, tell us all
I don’t know how we’d do it on our own

Yes please…
We love big brother…
Track Name: Twenty-three Six
When we were in high school, you and me sure were the best of friends
But now that we're in life, I only see you when a blue moon shines

When I got hitched, you came for the food
But when I broke up, you weren't in the mood
To lend an ear in my time of need
And when I call, you say you're really busy

Any hour of the day – you may be there
Any hour of the night – you might be there
Any day of the week – you could be there
I can count on you
Twenty-three six
Twenty-three six

I have always been a tower of strength when you could use a smile
It seems you'd have an hour or two to spare when I can't help but cry

When I buy lunch you come for the food
But when I go broke, you ain't in the mood
To lend a hand in my time of need
And when I call, you still say that you’re busy

[repeat Chorus]

Where have you been, where have you been, where have you been
Fair-weather friend, fair-weather friend, fair-weather friend

I have always been the one to trust whenever you've been down
But I'm a little tired of standing up for one who's not around

So when you cook out, I'll come for the food
But when you break down, I ain't in the mood
To lend an ear in your time of need
And when you call, I think I will be busy

Any hour of the day – I may be there
Any hour of the night – I might be there
Any day of the week – I could be there
You can count on me
Twenty-three six
Twenty-three six

Track Name: How To Be Rich
This is the plan, no matter your means
To manage your money, junk bonds or beans
Whether you're clever or challenged or dense
This is how to be rich

Don't buy what you don't want
Don't buy what you don't need
Don't burn your money
And don't buy things that don't work.

Think of the best things that credit can buy
Then climb up the ladder, reach for your prize
You'll find that there's always another rung higher
And two-ton gorillas to fight

Don't buy what you don't want
Don't buy what you don't need
Don't drink your money
And don't buy things that don't work.

Tell all those salesmen just what's on your mind
Ask why raw sugar cost more than refined
Guard every dime like a thief behind bars
And you'll keep all that is yours

So, don't buy what you don't want
Don't buy what you don't need
Don't smoke your money
And don't buy things that don't work.

The name on your clothes or a late-year Mercedes
Won't get you to Heaven or damn you to Hades
But what you hold dear may all become clear
When your final picture appears in the paper
And everyone's happier with your estate than with you

This is the plan, no matter your means
Don't count on money, just live out your dreams
Count up your blessings in peace and content
And this is how to be rich

Don't buy what you don't want
Don't buy what you don't need
Don't love your money...
And don't buy things that don't work.
Track Name: West Nile Virus (live on WKU)
I went to the forest
Walked thru the cypress
Tried to have a picnic but mosquitos tried to bite us
Now I got a fever and a throbbing sinus
Bit by a skeeter with the West Nile Virus

Went home to my walk-up
Put my feet up
Too tired to get up and pee or throw up
Writin' my will and countin' my days up
Praying at my funeral some friends will show up

Ah - eeee
Bite me

Those damn mosquitos
Are trying to screw us
Excedrin, Penecillin and aspirin are useless
Gonna end up cold in a state of detritus
Sicker than a dog with the West Nile Virus

Ah - eeee
Bite me

Don't go to the forest
Don't walk thru the cypress
Don't try to have a picnic where the skeeters tried to bite us
You'll end up cold in a state of detritus
Bit by a skeeter with the West Nile Virus

Ah - eeee
Bite me
Track Name: You Walked Out The Door
Well... long time no see, sure has been a while
Looks like you’re getting around in town while you flash that smile
And now you've got that look in your eyes again
It is a little tempting, but I remember when

(CHORUS)
You wore your clothes one time and threw ‘em all over the floor
You wore me out and then you came around for more
You whispered in my ear, I thought I knew what for
But then you packed your bags and added up your score
You tore out my heart, showed it to me, threw it on the floor, stepped on it, turned around and walked out the door

You rolled into my life in tight blue jeans
You proved a pretty face ain’t always what it seems
And though that slippery tongue knew just what to say
You showed off your good asset when you turned away

(repeat CHORUS)

I can’t be sure when a love comes knockin’
I can’t think straight when my heart is throbbin’
I can’t believe every smiling face
But I can put you back in your place

Well so long babe, I hope you have a time
Maybe you’ll gain a little wisdom down the line
And when that flashy smile goes by the wayside
Remember why there’s no one standing by your side

(repeat CHORUS)

Yeah, you tore out my heart, showed it to me, threw it on the floor, stepped on it, turned around – showed your best side – and walked out the door
